Paula Deen's in the crosshairs at Target -- with the retail chain telling TMZ they will NOT continue to do business with the chef in the wake of her N-word scandal.

FYI -- Target offers a variety of Paula Deen cookware ... including pots, pans and skillets.

A rep for Target tells TMZ ... "We have made a decision to phase out the Paula Deen merchandise in our stores as well as on Target.com. Once the merchandise is sold out, we will not be replenishing inventory."

Meanwhile, Puma has yet to drop Aaron Hernandez. Just sayin ...

It is really sad that if you say a "word" over 30 years ago your career is over. I don't approve of that word, but how many people who are passing judgement on her have said that word! She didn't break any laws, she just a bad word!

Bandwagon? Mob mentality? These are companies that want to keep their brand intact. They have no mercy when it comes to their bottom line. Do you think they want some kid walking down their aisles and see Paula Deen's face on some cookware, and the kid to say "Isn't that the lady who use the "N" word?" NO! Paula Deen has made her bed.

She has to be held accountable for her ignorance. Lets not forget there has been others Caucasian who used this very same word and still have their career. She didn't take it serious enough at first and actually thought she was better than a whole race of people. Those videos did not help.

Funny that the free speech center of the world goes nuts over one single word being used. Isn't it about time we stopped that lynching mentality just because someone uses the wrong word especially when insults are a routine part of comedy and current entertainment? I don't care what anyone calls me, it doesn't make me that. People are just too sensitive over one word--a word that is used jokingly by some in some instances.

The funny thing is when the Food Network dropped her all these rednecks were saying "BOYCOTT FOOD NETWORK", then Caesars Casino's dropped her they said "BOYCOTT CAESAR'S", but when the redneck cathedral Wallmart dropped her they were like......."You're on your own Paula." LMAO

when someone puts a gun to your head or does any violent crime towards someone in my eyes they are the N word if you act like one then you are one no matter your race or color act like a human being and you will be treated like one. why is it ok for a rapper to use the N word the C word(which is very offensive) and it is alright. this is a double standard and it stinks.You should be able to use any language you want in the privacy of your own home isn't that our first amendment right that so many of our soldiers are dying for.
